Description

The stories of Chicago's Italian communities are an important part of the rich and diverse mosaic of Chicago history. As a rail center, an industrial center, and America's fastest growing major city, Chicago offered opportunities for immigrants from all nations. Italians in Chicago presents an intriguing narrative record of the earliest beginnings of Italian communities in the city, going back to the 1850s. It explores the lives of ten significant members of the Chicago Italian-American community.This book is a collaborative, cumulative effort, and gives glimpses and echoes of what occurred in the Italian-American past in Chicago. Including vintage images and tales of such individuals as Father Armando Pierini, Anthony Scariano, and Joe Bruno, and groups such as the Aragona Club and the Maria Santissima Lauretana Society, this collection uncovers the challenges and triumphs of these Italian immigrants.
